I Am Somebody (Part 1) Lyrics

I Am Somebody (Part 1) by Johnnie Taylor  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
I Am Somebody (Part 1) I am somebody, yeah
You are somebody, yeah

A lawyer is somebody
Though he loses every case that he pleads
A doctor is still somebody
Though he gives out the wrong remedy

Now, I may not have shoes
To put on my feet
I may not have a [Incomprehensible] to eat

Alright, now, I'll tell you I am somebody
Every man and woman is somebody

Though you're up in society
Tell me where would you be
Without everyday people like me

You can make it, watch me make it
Watch me make it, I'm gonna make it

I am somebody, yeah
You are somebody
Old Martin was somebody
Before he ever started march on Washington
Old Bobby was somebody
Before his campaign for President begun

You may not have a place to lay your head
The clothes on your back
May be nothing but shreds

But you are somebody
Every man is somebody

There's some good in every man
Give him respect and give him a chance
And surely, surely he'll understand

You can make it
Oh, watch me, watch me make it
Now, watch me, watch me make it
I'm gonna, I'm gonna make it

'Cause I am somebody
Oh, oh, oh, yeah, you are somebody
I am somebody
You are somebody

Oh hey, stand up
